This engine is one of a pair from an Avro Anson trainer which crashed on Dunrod Hill in 1939 during a formation exercise. The pilot survived, but a crew member died in the accident. The engine now sits at the edge of the car park at the Greenock Cut Visitor Centre. The other engine remains at the crash site on the hill.

The engine has been cleaned up and mounted since my previous visit in 2007 NS2472 : Cheetah aero engine.
